At the 2014 commencement, the university has recognized 207 seniors as Steven and Kathryn Sample USC Renaissance Scholars. Each student has completed a major and a minor, or a double major, in two disparate fields with a grade point average of 3.5 or better. Each Renaissance Scholar is also eligible to enter the Renaissance Scholar Prize competition. Of the 77 graduating scholars who chose to compete, ten have been nominated to receive a $10,000 prize. The ten prize recipients form an exemplary group.
